Hi guys, I've recently got into the UAS and I'm really worried about my fitness.

What are the requirments for a girl and how hard are they to achieve?

What sort of exercise regime would you recommend for me to be able to pass it?

I've been told that my test will be within the next 3months but can be anything from 3weeks onwards :|

Cheers.x

Hi

There is already a UAS thread detailing the fitness requirements, http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=392670

"Male: 9.10 on bleep test; 20 press ups in 1 minute; 35 situps in 1 minute.
Female: Significantly less.

I personally would aim to go fit for OASC, so you are prepared on the day.

Also, well done for getting in.

Rob

Female it is as mspen said bleep test level 7.2
10 press ups (full type)
32 sit ups

that is to pass, but it will always put you in good stead for future OASC and in the eyes of the UAS if you appear above the minimum pass level.

Unfortunately I wouldn't know how times have changed, just haven't been around long enough as you seem to have been Wzz!
But I do know fitness regulations on the UAS so I was just trying to be helpful and give an additional tip.

You might want to get practicing then?

They are situps, as in sit ups. Not crunches, but sit ups. You know, those sit up things that aren't crunches? Yeah, SIT UPS.

Some of the questions people ask on here, I mean, come on...

I wasn't belittling your contribution or anything, I'm just surprised that the fitness test culture has even dripped down to UAS level. I don't really believe they should be a requirement for UAS service.

If you were joining the reserves with a risk of deploying, then yes, you need to be as fit as a regular. If your UAS has a health and safety obligation to check you're fit enough for certain activities, then I can understand why they'd put you through a test.

But all we did on my UAS (admittedly more than a couple of years ago) was the occasional fitness test "for fun." It was a look-see at the fitness levels required, to give you an idea of how fit you'd need to be if you wanted to go on and join, rather than an assessment of whether you were fit to be on a UAS. I'm much more in favour of job specific fitness tests and levels, rather than the generic "age and sex" one we do now.

It's the bold bit.

With the much much larger component of AT that UAS' get up to now they have to be sure that their people are able to take part safely. We're only talking about the minimum standards of the RAFFT and AT swim test though, they're not being asked to ace the IOTFA!
